The Bucs travelled to Athens, Georgia, over the weekend to compete in the Southern Intercollegiate, along with 32 other schools.

The team has brought on one new member to the team, freshman Miguel Este (Caracas, Venezuela), who made a showing on the first day of the tournament. Este was the only Buc to make it to the round of 16 in singles.

Senior David Biosca (Sant Fruitos De Bage, Spain) was also competing in singles and picked up a win in the round of 32, but fell to Maxx Lipman of Florida to end his run in the singles competition.

At the end of day one, the Bucs also had doubles pair David Gonzalez (Barcelona, Spain) and Wenceslao Albin (Salliquelo, Argentina) qualify to the next round against Georgia State.

Starting day two, the Bucs were set to compete in nine matches, both singles and doubles.

Este made another big showing in winning his round of 16 match to gain a spot in the quarterfinals of the Division II bracket.

Este joined Biosca winning two doubles matches, together making it to the doubles round of 16. Diego Nunez (Monterrey, Mexico) and Robert Herrera (Barcelona, Spain) came on the scene in doubles also winning two matches and a spot in the round of 16.

Albin and Gonzalez individually won their consolation bracket games on day two and joined together in a doubles match to get a win against Gardner-Webb.

On Sunday, the Bucs finished up their competition in Athens.

Este competed in the singles quarterfinal round, but fell short 7-5, 6-3 against Jesse Flores of Miami.

Nunez and Herrera won their round of 16 game, but lost in their quarterfinal match, as did the doubles team of Albin and Gonzalez.

Overall, the Bucs came away from the Southern Intercollegiate with a 5-4 record and a 3-1 record in singles play.
